Fort Bend ISD issues stranger danger alert after two incidents
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The Fort Bend Independent School District has issued a couple of stranger danger alerts after two students were approached in separate incidents.
The first one happened near Shiff Elementary School on Monday after school. FBISD confirmed a third grade student was heading home from school on his bike when he was approached on Sienna Ranch Road by a woman inside a black truck. The female occupant yelled out at him to come over to the vehicle, according to school officials. The boy rode off and made it home safely and reported the incident to his parents.
There is no further description of the truck or the occupants at this time.
Upon learning of the incident, school administrators notified the FBISD Police Department. The Fort Bend County County Sheriff's Office is looking to see if this case could be connected to any others in area.
The school district sent home a letter home to alert parents of the incident.
A second case also occurred on Monday, involving a Clements High School student as he exited his school bus near the intersection of Sienna Springs Boulevard and Sienna Ranch Road. FBISD spokesperson Nancy Porter says a student was approached by a woman in a car who said she worked for Fort Bend ISD and offered to give him study materials for the ACT and SAT exams. She also asked the student to come sit in her vehicle. The boy refused, went home and told his parents.
The suspect in that case is a described as a black female in her 40s or 50s. The vehicle is said to be a gray Nissan or Hyundai sedan.
FBISD learned about the incident on Tuesday night, and alerted parents as soon as they could on Wednesday.
